and background checks. but limiting the ban on semiautomatic rifles. what's the nra done? gone after the president's daughters. people are hurt by what happened to those first graders. it's not a smart move to be out there backing the gun runners. for sure it's not good to sell in the suburbs or the cities. it may not even sell in the country. nobody likes what happened in connecticut and a decent society will get off its butt. a decent society will get off its butt. both the gun kind and the other kind. collin goddard was a survivor of the 2007 virginia tech shootings. he's now with the brady campaign to prevent gun violence. and mark glazer is the director of mayors against illegal guns. for measures he could control through the executive branch. they range from nominating a permanent atf director to new measures on mental health and school safety and a campaign promoting gun safety for owners. but he also called on congress to take on the problem legislatively. >> these are a few of the 23 executive actions that i'm announcing today, but as important as these steps are, they are i
. this afternoon, biden sat down with the national rifle association, a first for the obama administration. the nra says its membership increased by more than 100,000 since the sandy hook shooting. attorney general holder is meeting with dick's sporting goods and walmart. white house is calling in heavy hitters to change public opinion including bill clinton who denounced the use of assault weapons and the administration has the strongest ally in gabby giffords, herself a victim of gun violence but the president has work cut out for him. nearly half of all americans oppose a ban or semiautomatic weapons including those in the federal assault weapons ban that expired near lay decade ago. so let's spin on all of this. i guess what this is building towards at least politically is the white house and allies want to try to isolate the nra, even on the right and within the republican party and so you have a meeting today with walmart, dick's sporting goods. they want to take, you know, groups like that, businesses like that, interests like that and sort of pit everyone, this sort of wide array against th
with the representative of the nra. the nra had harsh words for the white house after that meeting saying they feel as though this administration is trying to crack down on their second am d amendment rights. after the vice president met with representatives from the video game industry, there were also some stern words and i will read you a snippet from a letter that the entertainment consumers association said, quote, we're asking you to support the public's constitutional right to have access and not to blame the media. so those are some of the backdrop against which the vice president is going to offer the recommendations on tuesday. >> before i let you go, though. who is the biggest obstacle to him becoming confirmed at least as this week is wrapped up. >> you really have obstacles on a lot of different sides, thomas. you have democrats that have criticized some of the past controversial comments and chuck hagel is a republican who are against him and lindsay graham has expressed some concern, but senator chuck schumer, a democrat might be key in getting him confirmed and he's the third ranki
to president obama by next tuesday. right now, they're holding what could be a showdown meeting with the nra and other gun owner groups. it comes after the nra's president lashed out at president obama in a new internet radio interview. >> i think they're being disingenuous. i think they have seen this as an opportunity to go after the 2nd amendment which they have wanted to do for years. >>> also breaking, the atlantic pastor to deliver the benediction at president obama's second term inauguration is announcing to withdraw from the ceremony amid questions of an anti-gay sermon he gave in the mid-'90s. >> if you look at the counsel of the word of the god, you come quickly to the conclusion that homosexuality is not an alternate lifestyle. it is not just a sexual preference. it is not gay. but homosexuality is sin. >> the presidential inaugural committee issued a statement saying, quote, we were not aware of pastor giglio's past comments at the time of his collection and they don't reflect our desire to celebrate the strength and diversity of our country at this inaugural. before we get to vi
that he used, and clearly they are trying to shift the messaging and paradigm on this, because the nra made it all about they are coming for your guns and they are taking away your freedoms. instead, we're talking about gun safety, reducing gun violence. we're not talking about gun control. i think that's a very smart move for the white house, because again, it sort of lowers that initial barrier to get people to listen to the ideas that we're talking about. i thought it was very wise. >> joining us now from washington is the moderator of nbc's "meet the press," david gregory. good to have you. in terms of the remarks just now, karen said he's making the appeal to the notion of common sense. he put a raft of proposals on the table, but he also made a point to stress mental health protocols, to stress the fact he was going to hollywood on some of this to seem even handed in some of his suggestions. the other thing i thought was notable, he's calling on ordinary, everyday americans to talk to their friends, neighbors, elected representatives. this is part of the new obama playbook, which
since nowtown, not without a fiekt from the nra and the gun lobby. our next guest lee fong, contributing writer for "the nation," and he is here with the latest on what gun manufacturers are doing. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> when i see these numbers on guns, it's astonishing how much this tragedy has changed these numbers. >> this tragedy was unique, one because it was so horrific, but two, we saw a lot of political leadership that we haven't seen in previous massacres. with the shooting in wisconsin we didn't see the president campaigning and top democrats calling for reform. that has changed this time. >> michael: something that has changed is the way that the nra is being side stepped now by the gun manufacturers themselves. tell us a little bit about how that is happening and how different that is? >> typically the big gun manufacturers have stayed in the sidelines largely. instead they funnel money and coordinate with idealogical groups. usually the nra to push a very hard line and push their public policy pref
. everybody is for these things except the nra and the gun manufacturers. but who is fueling and funding the gun manufacturers? >> one big question congress may be looking at but bill de de blazio, the public advocate is ahead of these. he is on this case and joins us this morning on our news line. mr. public advocate, good to have you back on the show. >> hi, bill. >> hi, bill. thank for having me. >> we know that the nra -- right, is the lobby now nothing but the lobby for the gun manufacturers. who is behind the gun manufacturers? what have you found. >> who is behind the nra? the gun manufacturers. the nra has that chokehold on the political process and the legislative process in view of house they pointed that out. who is funding the gunfire industry? some of the biggest names in the financial industry. many of whom are based here in new york city or have offices here a couple of days ago, we went out in front of tiger management. but there are many others including black rock and big names that we found are very deeply invested in the guvenz and amm
, what did you learn? >> i think we learned that the nra is even crazier than you think they are. >> that is quite a lesson. what did you learn, donny deutsch? >> two things. my good friend, hoda kotb has a great new book out, and mike uses burt's bees to soften his hands. i have very, very dry -- >> no, no, no. what would you recommend for that? >> joe, stop this madness! >> they're very dry. would you recommend the same lotion you use. >> i would suggest you take a shower. >> nice shoes, though. >> do you actually wax your legs, donny? >> no, but they're very dry. mike and i have to talk about that. >> mike, what did you learn today? >> i learned so much i can't even tell you about it on here, joe. one of the things i did learn, what joe conason pointed out, is that the nra gives a whole new meaning to the word fringe. it is now at the top of the house become a fringe group. >> all right. well, mike, if it's way too early, what time is it? >> if it's way too early, it's time for "morning joe." but right now it's time for chuck todd and "the daily rundown." chuck? >> thank you,
on to the national rifle association. >> his office sent it to the nra? then less than a month after the oklahoma city bombing, on a day that had been proclaimed a national day of mourning for police killed in the line of duty, less than a month after the oklahoma city bombing, the nra took out a national newspaper ad defending a fund-raising letter that they had just sent which called federal law enforcement personnel jackbooted thugs. this is less than a month after the oklahoma city bombing. president george h.w. bush resigned his life membership in the nra in protest. ultimately, even after they first defended it, the nra was forced to apologize for the "jackbooted thugs" thing. and ultimately, old steve stockman did get voted out of office in texas in 1996. he'd only served one term in the house. but you know what happened to steve stockman in the long run? in this past election in 2012, the one we just had, steve stockman got voted back into office. texas decided to send him back. and then yeah, he was the guy who even before president obama said what he wanted to do on gun reform this week
the president later this morning. ahead of the announcement, the nra is releasing a new ad with a personal attack against obama. it preemptively criticizes him for not supporting armed guards in schools and it calls him this. >> mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> president obama has secret service protection for his daughters, sasha and malia. asking if the president's kids are more important than yours. oh, my goodness, secret service protection, pretty customary for the president and his family. more bill next. these talking points, that the right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off because now the government is going to help you fund your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative unc
. >> and the debate over guns, one month after 26 children and adults were killed in newtown, and with the nra saying assault weapon ban would not pass congress, the president urged house members to, quote, examine their own conscience. >> the belief that we have to have stronger background checks, that we can do a much better job in terms of keeping these magazine clips with high capacity out of the hands of folks who shouldn't have them, an assault weapons ban that's meaningful, that those are things i continue to believe make sense. will all of them get through this congress? i don't know. >> and joining me live now, democratic congresswoman jackie spear of california, vice chair of the new gun violence task force. congresswoman, thank you so much for your time. since you are on this task force, i would like to start off with the president's comments on gun control legislation. he says later this week we'll hear more specifics, but as i mentioned, you had the nra saying that they're doubtful that any legislation at least involving banning assault weapons would make it through congress. you have su
's meeting which will include the nra. during the meeting yesterday with victims of gun violence and gun safety groups, biden said the president was ready to get gun reform done with or without the help of congress. >> i want it clear to the american public that on behalf of the president we are reaching out to all parties on whatever side this falls. the president is going to act. executive orders, executive action that can be taken. we haven't decided what that is yet. >> inning choice of words there. those words. executive action. though perhaps also intended to contain expectations for advocates hoping for some sort of sweeping legislative change. it set off a firestorm in the gun rights community. south carolina congressman jeff duncan said this in a statement after hearing that quote. the founding fathers never envisioned executive orders being used to restrict our constitutional rights. we live in a republic, not a dictatorship. the drudge report put up a picture of hitler and stalin. my time you use hitler you are losing. rush lump ball warned listeners they are planning a gun gr
to the democrats in the next presidential election is governor chris christie of new jersey. recently the nra took out an add saying that president obama is a hypocrite because he sends his children to school protected by armed guards and that he doesn't want armed guards at other schools. christie didn't like that ad by the nra and said this. >> don't be dragging people's children into this. it's wrong. and i think it demeans them. and it makes them less of a valid, trusted source of information on the real issues that confront this debate. >> so what did you think? >> well, a reasonable objection to the nra, remember, he is from new jersey, a blue state. he has got to get reelected this year. and he has a legitimate beef with the ad. i frankly think the underlying point of the nra ad accurate one. there is is elite in america which is comfortable with having guards in private schools and is dismissive of the idea that we ought to have people with, you know, law enforcement officials with guns available in other schools as well. is he very, has a lot of people in public life are sensitive about a
's clear the proposals from the task force will be running head on into the nra. >> we know that it is -- there is no silver bullet. >> with vice president biden's task force the focus is starting to turn to what, if anything, can get passed with a congress in gridlock. but republican senator chuck grassley sounded positive about restricting high powered gun magazines and requiring background checks. >> i think we have to do things to make sure the database of the fbi has all of the information so people can't buy guns that shouldn't have guns. >> the vice president laid out some of the ideas emerging from his task force on thursday but did not mention a new assault weapons ban stirring speculation that the white house is dropping the proposal but the white house says that's not so. an administration spokesman told cnn avoiding this issue because it's been politically difficult in the past is not an option. that's despite what will be fierce opposition from the nation's top gun lobby, the national rifle association. >> i do not think there's going to be a ban on assault weap
of the mentally or emotionally disturbed. if we can't do that woult arousing the call to arms the nra. those who want to keep the scariest guns from the scariest people? or those who want to make it easy as possible for the scariest people to get the scariest guns. what side are you on, mr. and mrs. america? we begin with governor dan maloy of connecticut. governor, thank you so much. >> talk about it, what it means to be the governor of a state that saw the newtown horror. >> well, listen, it changes your life. i had to be there on the 14th. i actually had to tell a bunch of parents and adults that their loved ones were not coming back. and that's a life-changing experience. and then to go to funeral after funeral of babies over the course of a week is also life-changing. but having said all of that, we've got to do something about violence and something about the proliferation of these high-impact guns that really have no other real use tlan to kill someone. that's what they're designed for. a young man can walk into a school and set himself up to kill as many people as he possibly can and ult
. and this is an interesting comparison. 56% is the approval rating that the nra has. the national rifle association. this comes as former president bill clinton at a private meeting was warning fellow democrats about dismissing progun arguments. he said that could be very counter productive for democrats. interesting mix here. byron york joins me now. chief political correspondent for the washington examiner. good to have you with us. >> good morning, mar that are. >> an interesting comparison. if you less ton what the president has been -- if you you listen to what the president has been saying lately he has been really putting gun owners on the defense eastbound. when you look at the numbers the nra in the country is more popular than the president right now. >> sure is. i think it is important to remember in these fights between the two that people have been members of the nra and supporters of the nra for longer than barack obama has been a politician, much less the president. and i should say also that in this fox news poll people had a more favorable impression of the nra not only than presid
forward. >> we hear the nra described as powerful and influential. just how powerful? did in tnewtown change the dynamic? >> they will continue. there is a shorthand used with the nra. americans to support second amendment rights do so because the nra tells them to. the nra is interested in building their membership. they are not dictating thought to people. people care about their guns. there is a component that goes on between the nra and lawmakers. that relationship is more nuanced than is often portrayed. i would think the nra would push back on any attempt to renew an assault weapons ban. they have been more silent on the background check. >> thankx÷÷÷÷ you both for your questions and being with us on "newsmakers" today. host: caller: [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] blacks and about 85 minutes -- >> and about 85 minutes sheet justice roberts will issue the oath of office. it will take place tomorrow too much more public pomp and ceremony. the present one of seven u.s. presidency will be sworn in
earlier today, a breakfast meeting with a head of the nra. washington continues to debate what to do with the issue of gun violence in america. from this morning, the christian science monitor breakfast here on c-span. [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] [captioning performed by national captioning institute] >> here we go. thank you for coming. our guest this morning is david keene, president of the national rifle association. our guest has had a lifelong interest in politics. he is a graduate of the university of wisconsin law school. he ran unsuccessfully for the united states senate, and has worked as an operative for a who's who of republican candidates. he was a political assistant to spiro agnew. he has had key roles in the presidential campaigns of ronald reagan, george h.w. bush, and robert dole. he has been a fellow at the harvard institute of politics. so much for biography. now on to the exciting matters of process. we are on the record. no filing of any kind while the practice is underway. there is no embargo when the burress test is under way except
. you're a board member of the nra, which i don't think many people know. >> we have 76 board members. >> but you're a board member of the nra. >> yeah, mm-hmm. >> what is your view of the gun debate right now. and where can you see some kind of consensus? >> a member of the national rifle association at the very beginning said we ought to include people who have been adjudicated as mentally unstable in the national -- in the list of people who can't get guns. that was stopped by ted kennedy because the lobbyists didn't want that to happen. about half the states don't really get that information into the national check and get those in. if obama really considered this an important issue, he might have done something about it when he had a democratic house and a democratic senate. all this talk about republican obstructionism, the republicans had a majority of the house the last two years. the first two years of his presidency, he could have done immigration, didn't. could have passed something on gun control, didn't. >> do you own a gun? >> yes. >> what do you have? >> a shotgun. i li
that and much more in minutes, but first, the white house is fuming at the n.r.a. for using the president's children in its latest ad, but today, president obama surrounded himself with other people's children for his gun control announcement. so, is there a double standard here or not? we spoke to fox news analyst laura ingraham. nice to see you. >> good to see you. >> today the president had a press conference and the children behind him. >> wall paper children, yeah, it's always quite a dramatic show when the president wants to put on a choreographed moment and obviously, the kids suffered enormously and their parents brought them, but i don't know. something about involving children in a conversation about guns and murder to me seems -- that's a tough one. >> welsh the white house is also upset with the n.r.a., while the white house used the children to stage the-- they're upset with the n.r.a. the n.r.a. has a new ad out. >> yeah. >> in which they talk about the president's children having security at their school and jay carney said it was repugnant and cowardly what the n.r.a. did.

loophole is a perfectly good way to go forward. >> we hear the nra described as powerful and influential. just how powerful? did newtown change the dynamic? >> they will continue. there is a shorthand used with the nra. americans to support second amendment rights do so because the nra tells them to. the nra is interested in building their membership. they are not dictating thought to people. people care about their guns. there is a component that goes on between the nra and lawmakers. that relationship is more nuanced than is often portrayed. i would think the nra would push back on any attempt to renew an assault weapons ban. they have been more silent on the background check. >> thank you both for your questions and being with us on "newsmakers" today.

association as well as other gun owner and sporting groups. the nra released a statement, we were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and attached to the second amendment. they said that it's unfortunate that the administration continues to push on failed solutions to our nation's most pressing problems. biden says his task force on gun violence will send it is recommendations to president obama by next tuesday. while the vice president says he hasn't come to any specific conclusions yet, he sees an emerging consensus on certain ideas. >> there is a surprising -- so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks, not just closed to gun show loophole but total universal background checks, including private sales. >> assault weapons are another possible target for new gun restrictions. cnn crime and justice correspondent joe johns visited a gun store today and will join us in a little bit to discover what turns an ordinary gun into an assault weapon and the changes that may be coming. >>> an unlikely idea is gai
for the gun industry. >> the answer is the big lie has worked for years. the nra has said for years, if they take away your military-style assault weapons, take away the ar-15, they're going to take your hunting rifle, your handgun, which is a big lie. it's a big lie because constitutionally the government can't do that. the supreme court made sure of that. we had a shooting yesterday, an ar-15 in albuquerque. >> six people including children. i guess we just don't want to talk about it. >> blown away. >> a guy shot his family with an assault rifle. but that's all right to these people, i guess. i'm sorry. i don't mean to -- you know what? we have to have a tough conversation. >> you guys look like you're blaming me. >>> coming up next the baltimore ravens shock tom brady and the new england patriots. unbelievable. >> sorry, barnicle. >>> also it's setting up a match -- it's going to be a great game mika. it's going to set up a match with the 49ers. we'll be right back. i was overweight my whole life. i obsessed about my weight my whole life. i figured i was
guns in the wrong hands. the nra says it merely guards against frivolous lawsuits aimed at breaking gun makers. he joins us live in this exclusive interview. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> ted kennedy said this law was bought and paid for by the nra. in your mind, what was the intent behind this law? >> the time it was passed, there were a number of suits, predominantly by municipalities against the gun industry meant to attack against the sale of saturday night specials. the proponents of the law claimed it was designed to protect them from liability simply by making an inherently dangerous product. it was written much more broadly than that. the effect has been, when gun sellers or gun manufacturers act negligently, they're immune from any kind of liability. so you can have gun dealers turning a blind eye to the sale of hundreds of weapons to straw purchasers, and when those guns are resold or conveyed to people, criminals that use them to kill people, then they can't be held liable. that makes no sense. it's a protection not needed by the good actors and not deserved by the ba
hour we will speak directly to the n.r.a. about its big meeting with the vice-president yesterday when chris cox, executive director for the n.r.a. legislative action joins us live. don't miss that. developing right now, new information on the nationwide flu outbreak. the death toll is rising as one federal health agency is now calling this an epidemic. look at the red on your map. those are the states suffering widespread flu problem. a short time ago, the c.d.c. released its latest numbers. 20 children have died and now 47 states reporting widespread influenza outbreaks, up from 47 the week before. and these conditions may persist for weeks. but those c.d.c. numbers lag by a couple of weeks and just the last 48 hours we've learned there are now 27 dead in minnesota, 22 in pennsylvania, 18 in massachusetts, 8 in oklahoma, 6 in illinois, in new york, two nursing home patients have died, and it's important to note that the elderly, the ill and the young are considered the most vulnerable. we are going to bring you more developments on this as we get them. well, terrifying new details em
of course. >> if you were in a meeting with vice president joe biden tomorrow with the nra, and walmart, what would you be saying? >> that the discussion has not been going anywhere that we can tell in a productive way. we're not talking about making it so people can defend themselves precisely in these gun-free zones that have been the scene of all of our mass murders for the last 20 years. hopefully, at some point we're going to come to the realization that repeating the same policy year after year, getting the same deadly results is only going to get us the same deadly results the next time. >> right, so your solution, if you were there in that meeting would be to arm every school, every church, every hospital. everywhere that members of the public could be? >> you certainly would want to encourage people who are qualified to carry concealed firearm to be able to do so in a school zone. right now, that is illegal. in all but a couple of our states and some of our institutions of higher learning. but by and large, it is prohibited. that needs to stop, because we have been using those
